Hackathon Comes to Tel Aviv!


Do you think you have ideas that can change the world? If so, then you need to join the first ever Networking and RDMA hackathon being held in Tel Aviv!

I love innovation and started the software hackathons inside Mellanox almost three years ago. It is an amazing platform for employees to drive their cool ideas and turn them into real products. We are now running software hackathons inside Mellanox globally three times a year.

Following the success of these events, we decided to organize a hackathon in Tel Aviv. We want to enable the startup nation to leverage Mellanox advanced networking technologies to scale and get the best performance for many applications.

The Hackathon will be 25 hours of great RDMA and Network hacking at the Old Jaffa Tachana Station in Tel-Aviv, on Dec 1st-2nd.  We’ve opened this event to IDF tech units, startups and academic students. Join us, enjoy a great experience of marathon coding throughout the night, percolate your ideas, achieve the best performance and scalability for your application, and gain exposure to industry leaders. Also, let’s not forget the chance to win great prizes!

As with any proper all-nighter Hackathon, great atmosphere and food will be provided throughout the event. We will provide Virtual Machines running on Mellanox CloudX® for teams to use throughout the Hackathon.

Think about scale-out data center applications. Think about efficiency. Think about performance. Think about break through innovation.

Got it?

So hurry up and register at http://www.hackatop.com (registration closes Nov 17, 2016).
